Postpone or push through?

Postby esther0123 » Wed Aug 29, 2012 7:32 pm

Currently I'm scoring in the mid 160s, with one 171 under my belt. I'm just getting paranoid that I won't be where I need to be come October. Should I push through or postpone until October? is 172+ feasible plan for October where I stand? Logic game fluctuates wildly, so I need to get that honed to 0~-1... With school year coming up + thesis, I'm worried that I won't be ready for October writing.

You're not far off. If LG isn't consistent, go through the LG Bible and/or Manhattan book, drill, and tighten it up. Don't let your focus on improving one thing let your other skills get dull though, keep practicing RC and LR, and try to improve those as well. You can do it though.

I really think people make their best gains a few weeks before the test. You hear stories of burning out, running out of material, not being able to improve after a certain point, etc. and you don't really give this test your absolute best effort until a few weeks before the test. I think the exception to this is for people comfortable with where they are scoring currently. Those people should not get too comfortable, however... this test is remorseless. You need to be a bit on edge to push yourself to improve. That comes when the test does not feel like some sort of far off dream, but rather becomes a reality that you alone will face very soon.
